8:34pm
his reputation after the u- s-a today reports armstrong will quote, "admit to doping throughout his career." the newspaper does not name their source, but says its a person with knowledge of the situation. u-s-a today says the former seven-time tour de france champion's admission, which had been widely rumored for weeks, is expected to come in a monday interview with oprah winfrey that will be taped for air thursday. as for why he's doing this now? the journalist who broke the story says armstrong had no choice. >> "with all the evidence that's come out against him it's hard to deny it anymore. and he's making a calculated decision, for himself, personally, and it's also, i think, a business decision for him because it's affecting his charity, livestrong, all of him." armstrong has kept a low profile at his austin home since the u-s anti doping agency released thousands of pages of evidence of what it said was a sophisticated and brazen doping program.
8:35pm
but it's armstrong's repeated denials over the years to protect his name that has angered so many, including former teammates found guilty of doping themselves >> "did you see lance armstrong using other performance enhancing drugs?" >> "at times, yeah, at different training camps." >> "he took what we all took. there's really no difference between lance armstrong and the say majority of us." >> reporter: the difference may be that few from his former entourage have fallen from grace as hard already without tens of millions of dollars in endorsements, late last year armstrong-- a cancer survivor-- was forced out from livestrong, the cancer charity he founded. and now, if he comes clean, armstrong could face some legal repercussions. in the interview with winfrey, armstrong is not expected to give great detail, but the confession could give him a shot at resuming his competitive racing career. >> "if he wanted to get his
8:36pm
ban reduced, the rule book says no less than eight years. right now he's 41. so eight years from now he would be 49, and i don't know how interested he would be in competing at that age." >> cnn's calls to armstrong's attorneys for a response to the usa today report have gone unanswered. nick valencia, cnn, atlanta. >> the gun debate is heating up in washington, and across the country. vice president biden met with groups all week-- from gun control advocates, to the n-r-a-- hoping to find a solution to the nation's gun violence problem. the issue isn't just dividing lawmakers. as athena jones tells us, religious groups are also at >> "you all know this is a complicated issue." >> reporter: gun control is front and center at the white house. and a matter of debate among christians. (church bells) >> "there is a fascinating religious divide on the issue of gun control." >> reporter: a survey by the public religion research institute- conducted before the newtown shooting- found six in ten catholics support
8:37pm
stricter gun control laws, compared to about a third of white evangelical protestants and 42 percent of white mainline protestants. >> "it's just not about theology. it's also about culture and geography." >> reporter: the poll also found white evangelicals are the most likely to own guns. many live in southern and rural areas where guns are a way of life. so what does the bible say about weapons? >> "scripture teaches that christians are not to take weapons and avenge other people. however, there is an affirmation that government evil doers." >> reporter: with polls showing increased support for gun laws after newtown, could we see a shift among evangelicals? >> "it may be a tipping point where more folks in those communities realize that there are things we can do as a society to tamp down this kind of mass violence that doesn't require taking away everybody's guns." >> reporter: pastor daniel darling is calling on fellow evangelicals to support limits on high capacity magazines and assault weapons. >> "the scriptures call us
8:38pm
to love our neighbors more than we love our guns." >> reporter: still- some conservative christians say the focus shouldn't be on guns but on the environment giving rise to this violence. >> "instead of having, as the n-r-a proposes, a policeman in every school, our policy should be focusing on getting a dad in every home.": >> "vice president biden said friday he's glad evangelical groups have participated in his gun policy task force meetings because, in the past, they have been quote, 'reluctant to engage' on the gun issue. athena jones, cnn, washington. >> >> this just in to the kron 4 news room this is over. 45-31. san francisco! gary radnich is here with all of your highlights. that is going to be coming up.
